Flag designs retain the traditional blue background and white star elements representing our colonial past and current (non-indigenous) national identity.
It is my intention that these flag designs should represent those Australians who believe that as a nation we can be better, that we can lead the way in creating a more progressive society that will continue to champion the ideals of freedom, fairness, justice and tolerance.
My designs are NOT intended to represent the racists, the xenophobes, the bigots and all those that push the politics of hate and division. My designs do not represent those that believe that our only relevant history is our white colonial history (as shameful as that is) or that Aboriginal Australians should ‘just get over it’. Neither does it represent those that believe that we can never change our flag simply because it was the national flag during times in which our country was involved in past armed conflict.
Design Notes: Red, white and blue bands from the Union Jack – Fed Star from the current flag – Yellow sun from the Aboriginal flag – Wattle frond from the Australian Coat of Arms – Black and red bands from the Aboriginal flag.
